CAIRO— The Al-Jazeera TV station on Friday said its Cairo office was stormed by "gangs of thugs" who burned and damaged equipment.

The satellite station, widely watched in the Middle East, portrayed Friday's attack as an attempt by Egypt's regime or its supporters to hinder Al-Jazeera's coverage of the uprising in Egypt.

The station also says its Arabic web site has been under relentless attack by hackers since the unrest began Jan. 25.

Last week, Egyptian authorities closed Al-Jazeera's Cairo office, revoked the credentials of Al-Jazeera reporters and detained several of them for various periods.
